  • I grew up in St Marys county until I was 12. This is the first time I paid a serious visit to what was then the new park. I was very impressed with how in keeping with the spirit and charm of the old county the new park is. The park was not active when I visited (very late December) but even so the grounds were open and we walked about exploring for a few hours despite the cold. Great place. Definitely going back when the reenactors are there.
  • Such an amazing piece of history. We went on the archaeology weekend and got to help sift through debris. My daughter found a dropped lead musket ball and my son found a hand made nail. It was a delight! The archaeologists giving the tours were truly remarkable and full of knowledge!
  • Awesome living history museum. Great place to bring kids but adults will love it too. The excellent staff make maryland history come alive!
  • Awesome museum. Fantastic staff. The best 10 bucks ever spent.
  • Interpreter s were abosolutely wonder. They patiently spoke to and answered all of my 8 year old grandson. I was overwhelming impreszed!
